My sister drove my 2002 Pontiac Montana and the next morning

Customer Question

My sister drove my 2002 Pontiac Montana and the next morning it wouldn't start. Nothing was left on and prior to this I didn't have any problems with it! Now I can't even get it to start by jumping it. It gets power......lights come on and door songs but it won't start. Could I have blown a main fuse?
JA: Does the engine turn over? How old is the battery?
Customer: Engineer won't turn over. I believe the battery is 2 or maybe 3 years old
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I would like to fix myself of possible. Was going to get new battery but had someone ask why I thought that would work if it can't even be jumped. Now I'm worried maybe alyernator
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Can't think of anything

Disconnect battery, touch cables together for 10 seconds, then try. Let me know if that helps, thanks.
